Hey!  Wot is this?  Thanks a lot 

David Austin Roses, are they worth it?

Posted: 11/01/2016 at 07:20

Hiya Karen....you are absolutely right. I moved rose and was surprised how difficult it was as roots, as you say, went so deep.   my only real disappointment was the lack of scent.

Ok Snow .  Will I get a mars bar if I'm good? 

Magnolia container or kept under control?

Sthindngrower, 

the variety Susan is the most reliable magnolia. nice and compact.  Wont exceed your height limit

magnolias dont like being pruned too much or moved so a large container would be a solution.  Shelter from cold winds and an acid soil (not essential but preferable).  Use ericacious john innes compost. 

In my experience magnolias can be temperamental though. 

enjoy your magnolia

Nothing quicker than pittosporum Jules.

check out P Garnettii.  one of the hardiest and very attractive.  if not bitterly cold with you just plant and stand back.  Easily pruned.
